PRESIDIO OF SAN FRANCISCO (May 17, 2018) – The highly anticipated Lodge at the Presidio will open to the public on June 28. This newly rehabilitated historic boutique hotel will be the closest lodging in San Francisco to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, featuring unparalleled views of the bridge, the Presidio’s lush 300-acre forest, the San Francisco Bay, and the city skyline. Advance reservations are currently being taken at www.lodgeatthepresidio.com.
“We’re very excited to welcome guests from all over the world to the new Lodge at the Presidio. As the sister property to the Inn at the Presidio, the Lodge will reflect the rich history of the Presidio, along with offering breathtaking views and a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors to San Francisco,” says Terry Haney, Managing Director, Presidio Lodging.
The 42-room Lodge at the Presidio is the most recent building to be rehabilitated in the Presidio. The park itself is the most ambitious historic preservation project in the U.S., with 470 structures on the National Registry of Historic Places. The building was formerly one of the Montgomery Street Barracks built between 1895-97 by the US Army to accommodate six artillery companies, a Calvary troop, and two infantry companies.
According to building principles of “adaptive reuse,” the Lodge has been re-imagined as a contemporary, comfortable lodging space, while preserving its historic elements and original character. The new Lodge will exemplify the highest standards of sustainability, in compliance with the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) standards.
The majority of guestrooms will feature stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the surrounding forest, or the San Francisco Bay. The Presidio’s rich history will be showcased throughout the property with artisan details and memorabilia, complemented by comfortable, modern finishes, and furnishings. Guests will enjoy recreational social areas including a courtyard garden with a fire pit, a front porch with rocking chairs, and a large dining room lounge where a generous complimentary breakfast and evening wine and cheese reception are served. Concierge service will be available 24 hours a day to help active travelers discover the national park and its many activities.
Serving as the jumping off point for exploration, the Lodge provides a perfect starting point for both natural and urban adventures. The Presidio features 24 miles of hiking trails, 25 miles of bikeways, an 18-hole Presidio Golf Course, and cultural and recreational tenants such as the Walt Disney Family Museum, the recently opened Presidio Visitor Center, and the Presidio Officers’ Club.
The complimentary PresidiGo Shuttle allows guests to easily explore downtown San Francisco and other neighborhoods.
The Lodge at the Presidio and its sister property, the highly acclaimed Inn at the Presidio, are owned by the Presidio Trust and operated by Waterford Hotels.
Rates for the Lodge at the Presidio start at $275 per night, exclusive of tax and based on availability. For reservations and more information, visit http://www.lodgeatthepresidio.com/.
